This stuff has a boozy blast of alcohol up front (it dissipates quickly), but has two things in its favor...or maybe three. First, the piney scent is nice. Second, that scent does not last long; something many of you might favor. Third, it has some moisturizing element in it that smooths and softens skin extremely well without being particular sticky, greasy or anything uncomfortable as long as you don't overdo it. I keep a Dopp at work and shaved first thing this morning upon arriving. When I was bored at lunch, I dropped into the LS a few thin strips sliced from fresh tangerine peel. After shaking and about an hour of soaking, the pine was knocked down some and had blended with the citrus to make a subtler but really nice and clean scent. It's worth a shot for the four or so bucks it costs now. You might like it.
